I just wanted to post a note that this summer we flew to and from Munich on Air Canada. We have multiple food allergies including a peanut allergy. Although Air Canada does not serve peanuts on their flights, they do not guarantee that their food is "peanut-free".

However, it was very interesting to learn that due to European regulations, all flights departing from Europe carry an allergy information binder that identifies priority allergens in all food served on the plane. I asked to see the list and was given it to study early in the flight so that I could check the various meal options, which was helpful. Unfortunately - and this is bizarre - flights departing from Canada do not provide the same information.

A footnote to the above air travel is that, having spoken with airline staff about my own allergies in the past, which include nightshades and evergreen spices - items not covered by the priority allergen list - I have been advised by airline staff to always pack my own food, which I now do. Ultimately, the safest way to travel with allergies is to travel with your own food - and your Epipens.
